Instagram’s new update: more and more profit for the company
The financial company, Morgan Stanley, further mentioned that Facebook continues to find ways to increase its profits by monetizing usage and sub-monetized engagement.
According to Brian Nowak, an analyst with the entity, he states that:
“If the ‘explore’ section can be monetized to the tune of $2 per user by 2021 and user growth rates can be maintained, it could add around $1.2 billion to the group’s revenue.”
And it is worth noting that, with such revenues, the current earnings of Zuckerberg’s company would increase by two percent.
The announcement about Instagram’ s update to introduce advertising in ‘explore’, is not the only thing these days. Well, other initiatives of the platform to monetize its products are added.
